FOX lets us know it's broadcasting American Pie sometime soon. Can anybody think of a movie that would be more pointless to watch after it's been put through the whole edited-for-television process? Note to FOX: I didn't sit through that movie to check out Shannon Elizabeth's acting ability.
10:15 PM. "Reality Check" on the screen again and it's even more annoying the second time. Even more annoying is the fact they they show us exactly the same shots of Tim sucking bits of food out of his wisdom teeth sockets again. Finally, as tinkly piano music starts up, Tim says, "Last night, I definitely lied to you, Cecile, without any unequivocal question," and I hate it when people use big words in an attempt to sound profound or serious when they clearly don't have a clue as to proper usage, since they wind up spouting nonsense like "without any unequivocal question." My god, this scene is interminable. Tim takes about five hours to explain that he considers her a close friend (Cecile won't even look at him), but he's not attracted to her. In an interview, Karen says that Cecile went through her worst nightmare, which is getting rejected in front of everybody. Hey, Karen, thanks for explaining your biggest fear is getting rejected "in front of everybody" to the INTERVIEWER FOR THE TELEVISION SHOW BEING WATCHED BY MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AND WHICH ENDS WITH YOU IN A WEDDING DRESS WAITING FOR A MARRIAGE PROPOSAL.
Doug says he looked at all the other new guys and they were all like, "What are we doing here? This is dramaville. Let's get out," which is the smartest thing anybody has said on this show to date.
Now the other women are all "oh no you di-i-n't!" deciding to take a break, and they yank Cecile out of there. In an interview, Rebekah says that Tim was obviously lying to himself and playing with Cecile's feelings, but she says a bigger issue is that Tim did it in front of everybody: "I was pissed off about that" and she emphasizes "pissed off" just to demonstrate how "pissed off" she was, and if there's anyone who should shut up about this, it's Rebekah, who certainly didn't mind pressuring Tim earlier in front of everybody to reveal his feelings and now that he's done EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS PRESSURED TO DO IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY she's "pissed off" about it. SHUT UP, REBEKAH.
Oh, god. Fallout time. In the bathroom, naturally. Cecile is cursing up a storm while still drinking her tea or whatever and she's taken off the shaggy vest and has on some excellent underwear-looking top thing. "What the fuck was that?" she says, bleeped and mouth blurred so as not to offend the lip readers, I guess, who I don't imagine are even watching this show since 90% of the dialogue on this show is voice-over.
